There are times in our lives when we have memorable encounters. We can meet our hero. Return to our family after a long absence. Or fall in love with a glance. And it can be hard to put those experiences into words though because we feel like we’re interacting with something beyond our normal scope of reality, something so magical it probably belongs in a fantasy. Which are the kinds of stories featured in this episode, stories in fantastical realms where the characters meet creatures in mystical places that change the course of their lives.
